paul ryan's home state. the polls have been kind of all over the map there where obama had a big lead earlier and then it tightened. certainly paul ryan is helping in wisconsin. it is such a political state this year with the scott walker recall and republicans winning that. of those states i think wisconsin is the best shot for republicans and, you know, pennsylvania, usually goes to the, at the presidential level it goes to the democrat but, you know, we'll see. you know, you look back at 2008 primary between hillary clinton and president obama, hillary clinton thumped the president though the president did easily did defeat john mccain in 2008 in pennsylvania. jon: let me take you back into some of those fox news polls with some surprising numbers at least to me. one of them is the question, when asked, what best describes how the obama administration has handled radical muslim terrorists? 55% of americans say they think it was too soft. now this is a president who constantly talking about how, you know, under his administration we got usama bin laden. 55% say too soft on that. wha
't propose anything yet. >> excuse me. paul ryan passed two years of budgets to deal with -- >> not fiscal cliff. >> republicans have plenty of plans on the table in terms of tax reform and entitlement reform and spending reform all of which we need to do. this conversation assumes the president doesn't want to go over the fiscal cliff. i disagree. i think he does. i think he wants all the tax rates to go up. you can argue the politics of this. he needs revenue to come in. he wants more spending, not less. wants 1.2 trillion dollars in defense cuts because he wants to cut the military and wants an unlimited credit card in terms being allowed unilaterally to raise the debt limit. he wants all of these things and he knows he will not get blamed for it. the republicans will get blamed for it no matter what happens. the gop will get blamed for it because the mia is protective the president. he has nothing to lose, jon. he is willing to go over the cliff. >> i think what he is say take us over the cliff and vote with the democrats and dare republicans not vote it for 90% of the americans wouldn

[cheers and applause] you know the closing hours of a campaign have a dynamic all their own. a lot of voters have known for some time who they were going to vote for but there are others just now putting aside the demands of their daily life and considering how their vote will affect their own life, the life of their children, and of course the course of the country
the republican congress. jon: why not endorse simpson-bowles? >> i love it. why didn't paul ryan, your standard-bearer, monica, why didn't he vote for simpson-bowles? he voted against it. >> because it didn't address health care spending, julie. >> you endorse bowles-simpson all of sudden there are problems with this or do you not? >> negotiating starting point when the president blew off. >> paul ryan voted against it. here is the bottom line if we keep doing what monica and i doing, we'll stick to our position and they will stick to their position, nothing is going to get done. both side need to come to the table. both sides need to compromise. >> willing to compromise on? >> for actually, on spending? >> absolutely, monica. not just spending but entitlement reform something he tried to do. >> he didn't try to do. >> grand bargain eric cantor and paul ryan tanked. >> first term the president fundamentally unserious about deficit reduction why we have these record four years of trillion dollars plus deficits. he was fundamentally unserious about tackling entitlement reform. there is nothing in
and paul ryan undermining anything he's going to do in terms of negotiations. nor kweus said no compromise, no way know-how. you have bobby tkopbl in virginia, colleagues of ours, bill crystal a conservative saying why don't we get off this whole notion of no way know-how and at least talk about potentially raising revenue rates on the upper, upper, upper easterners here. john boehner is in a bind because he's not going to be able to do that based on his own caucus, it's not the president who is the problem it's john boehner's lack of control of his own party. jon: you hear john boehner telling the president to show some leadership. >> i hope he goes to his caucus and is able to corral them. >> if you want economic growth you lower taxes. jon: julie and monica, thank you. >> thank you. jon: and we'll be right back.
